Music Monday - "Disko Partizani" - Shantel
For other tales of musical adventure, please visit Soccer Mom in Denial.
Okay, so I couldn't resist. Ever since Betsy posted this song on Blogness Monster, I've been hooked. I went to i-Tunes that very day and downloaded the whole album immediately. And now Shantel and his Bucovina Club crew of Turkish, Arab, Israeli and German musicians/comedians/followers troop along with him as he combines everything from disco to gypsy music to Klezmer to Turkish pop. The fusion mix is irresistible, and it's become my accompaniment to working out and house cleaning, and occasionally cooking, if I have to chop very fast. While I included "Disko Partizani" below, there is no clunker on the entire album. I especially like the humor and pathos of "Disko Boy."
Have fun and get your Monday dance groove on!
